Nilekani contradicts himself on UID

Just saw a piece of news saying that Nandan Nilekani, the Czar of the unique identification number program, has claimed that the UID will improve national security. How? If everyone has a UID, the state can `track’ everyone. Aside from the Orwellian images this statement conjured up, it also contradicted Nilekani himself from not so long ago, when he said that the UID would be optional.

Is he even planning to do his job, or is he simply happy to be an unelected cabinet minister?
